Women and Hollywood: Statistics
DDP reaction by Isabelle Vail
Led by Melissa Silverstein, Women and Hollywood is a nonprofit dedicated to women's parity in film. Like the Dance Data Project, though ten years older and more established, the organization researches female involvement in a plethora of areas in the art form. Directorships, productions, attendance, award representation - you name it - Women and Hollywood sets the tone for 2018, a year of change.
On their website, the nonprofit includes a page with striking statistics. Its display is concise and to the point: women simply don't get the opportunities that men do. Take a look below and see all the areas studied by the organization. With enough resources, DDP could too study such diverse areas of the dance field.
